It’s Good To Be Crazy is a cocktail specially created by Alex Kratena, Head Bartender of Artesian at The Langham, to salute the architect Makoto Tanijiri. If you’re a bartender and there’s an unconventional thinker you’d like to celebrate here’s what you need to know to be in with a chance of winning a very special prize…

G’Vine Perspectives is a unique challenge. Create an original G’Vine cocktail to salute your chosen person – they can be anyone; artist, designer, philosopher, scientist, politician or someone from the drinks industry. They could be from the present or the past. They might be someone you know or someone you just wish you had met. Then make a short video about your chosen person and your serve. If you make the cut you’ll be heading off to France for five days, visiting Bordeaux, Cognac and Paris. The trip includes a visit to a family-run cognac house, a cooking workshop with a Michelin-starred chef, a gin-paired lunch at a top Paris restaurant, a nosing master class with one of the city’s leading fragrance houses, a poolside dinner party and hot air balloon ride.

You can see more about G’Vine Perspectives here and find full details on the G’Vine Perspectives website. Hurry, you’ve got just four days to go…
